iTunes 7.2 released May 30, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in iTunes, Security, Updates & Patches.

Fire up Software Update: a new version of iTunes has just been released. iTunes 7.2 allows you to

preview and purchase iTunes Plus music—new higher-quality, DRM-free music downloads from participating music labels.

Additionally (according to iTunes help):

The iTunes Store also offers songs without DRM protection, from participating record labels. These DRM-free songs, called “iTunes Plus,” have no usage restrictions and feature higher-quality encoding.

The first time you buy an iTunes Plus song, you specify whether to make all future purchases iTunes Plus versions (when available). You can change this setting by accessing your account information on the iTunes Store.

If you already have iTunes Store purchases that are now available as iTunes Plus downloads, you may upgrade your existing purchases. To do so, visit the iTunes Store and follow the onscreen instructions.

At least this saves us all the DRM-purging step of burn-to-a-CD then re-rip. The download is 29.2MB for most systems.

On a side note, also available is Security Update 1.0 for Quicktime 7.1.6. It’s a 1.9MB download. More on this here.
